Pioneering medication therapy management company HealthStat Rx is changing its name to “Curant Health,” effective immediately.
Founded in 2000, the company has evolved into an integral partner in care management for healthcare networks, hospitals, clinics and patients. Today, Curant Health fills a key gap between doctors and their patients, improving the lives of millions of patients with chronic conditions across the country. From effective medication packaging, to detailed electronic medical records for physician and pharmacist reference, to frequent and direct patient outreach, the organization touches several key points of patient care.
Curant’s medication management methods improve the lives of people living with chronic diseases, including Hepatits C, diabetes, HIV and cancer. According to a recent study with Purdue University and home care provider Amedisys, patients experienced a greater than 30 percent reduction in 30-day hospital readmissions for all risk groups when participating in the Curant Health program. Curant Health substantially improves patient outcomes and lowers overall healthcare costs.
The name Curant, from the Latin “curia” evokes care, cures, councils and community. It is a more appropriate moniker for the company’s future and focus.
“It’s not just about statistics and measurement,” says CEO Patrick Dunham. “What matters, and what we do for people, bridges a significant gap between physicians and patients. It keeps ‘the cure’ front and center. Our capabilities, systems and patient care model have enabled us to profoundly change medication therapy management.”
